Welcome to Port McNicoll

Port McNicoll is a community in the Canadian province of Ontario. It is located in the Simcoe County, Township of Tay.

The community of Port McNicoll was established in 1908 as a Great Lakes port on the southern shores of Georgian Bay. It was the home port of the Canadian Pacific Railway's Great Lakes Service from 1908, when the eastern terminus of the marine operations were relocated from Owen Sound.

Port McNicoll was also the western terminus of the CPR's Georgian Bay and Seaboard Railway connecting to its Ontario and Quebec Railway, near Bethany.

The Village of Port McNicoll was incorporated in 1917 and we're celebrating.

Come party with us!
